Our Approach

We know a lot more about divorce today that we did not know years ago. We know how conflict and divorce conspire together to cause significant physical and mental health issues in adults and children alike.  We are all well aware of how expensive divorce gets when you combine attorneys with courts. We have learned that people are more satisfied with the divorce process and the outcome when they remain in control over the process.   

Our approach is simple. Provide people with a divorce process that reduces conflict and expense, keeps them in control over their divorce, and helps people make better decisions.  We can best provide these benefits to people without having to go to court, through the use of mediation and collaborative practice, or assisting people in a do-it-yourself divorce.  When the only option is divorce in court, our approach remains the same.    

Contact us for a free consultation. We are happy to speak with you about our approach, discuss your options, and help you decide what's best for you and your family.
